Millie Bobby Brown showed her support to the families involved in the Parkland shooting by wearing the victims names on her custom denim jacket at Saturday’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

2018 has been the year that celebrities showed their support for social and political campaigns via their sartorial decisions.

Back in January actors and actresses at the Golden Globes actors wore black to in sartorial solidarity of the campaign against the sexual harassment of women in Hollywood.

That was swiftly followed by Grammys and the Brit Awards who had their own #metoo and Time’s Up moment by encouraging artists to don white roses.

Now ‘Stranger Things’ star Millie Bobby Brown has shown her support to the #MarchForOurLives movement by wearing a custom Calvin Klein denim outfit with all 17 names of the victims of the Parkland massacre stitched onto the back.

On Saturday, March 24, the survivors of the Parkland shooting organised the March For Our Lives, which took place in Washington and cities around the country.

Later that day the 14-year-old actress honoured the teenage victims who died in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Valentine’s Day.

Above the names read ‘March For Our Lives’ while ‘Never Again’ was also printed above her front left pocket in support of the weekend’s nationwide protest against gun violence.

Taking to the stage to accept the award for Favourite TV Actress, the 14-year-old also shone a light on the cause with an emotional and powerful speech.

“Thank you so much for this award, and to Nickelodeon for bringing us all together,” she said. “As we saw a moment ago, the March for Our Lives demonstrations that took place all over the world today have inspired me and impacted us all in one way or another.

“But more than anything, I get to be up here, and I’m privileged to have a voice that can be heard, one that I can use to hopefully make a positive difference and help influence change.

“OK, so there’s an amazing support, love and kindness in this room right now, and I want to encourage everyone to embrace it and to pass it on.”

She concluded, “For the angels among us, your spirit lives on. This is for you.”

After the show, the actress, who plays Eleven in Stranger Things, posted a photo of her jacket on Twitter and Instagram thanking Calvin for supporting her and the movement.

“Thank you to all the fans who voted for me and for Stranger Things at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards today,” she wrote.

“A big [folded hands emoji] also to my friends at Calvin Klein for being such a champion of important causes and efforts to create positivity in this world. #marchforourlives #neveragain”
